Tonight I am home alone. Manly Man is working in the city and is going to be home very late.
There are cakes in the cupboard.
I want them.
I am resisting them at the moment.
I want to resist them more than I want to eat them.
I have just polished off a nice bottle of water. I definitely don't feel as hungry as I did about 20 minutes ago. So I'm not hungry then, just need to keep up the water.
The boring food bits:
Breakfast - standard. Lunch - Rally Cook Book Brown Rice Salad minus the oil. Tea - Fish in a box, Oven fries, Tinned baby beetroot, Microwaved mixed vege. (Lol, you can tell I'm home alone and trying to manage two small boys and cook tea) Snacks - banana, yoghurt.
The boring exercise bits:
No walk today - no chance to get out by myself. Have done 20 mintues on the LTT and will do another 20 more very soon.
The boring mood bits:
Well I spent nearly a thousand dollars today and all on me. Necessary though. It's been 10 years since I've had new glasses. The ones I have a verging on metal fatigue. They got munted this time last year (whilst on holiday) and the local optomitrist made a very good job of fixing them but she spent ages and ages and ages assuring me and covering butt by saying they could break and was she sure I wanted her to attempt to fix them. Anyway my sight prescription has changed. Apparently I am lucky to have such settled eye sight (haven't had a prescription change since 2004) but I do now need new lenses for my glasses. I AM VERY VERY SHORT SIGHTED. Like seriously short sighted. In the olden days of the "chart" in the eye test I would say point me in the direction of the chart and I will tell you I can't see it. Why am I telling you this? Well it means that to get lenses less than an inch thick (that's not a joke), that will fit a frame and will actually provide corrective vision for me I can't get standard single vision lenses (the ones they advertise on telly as 2 pairs for $299 etc). The lenses for my glasses alone are $411. Yup that is just the lenses. Then to find a suitable frame to accommodate the lense. Because only a serious fool would put $400 lenses into frames on their last legs (well past their last legs really). Suitable frames are hard to find. Most of the modern frames available are quite small. I have to find a frame the sits really well on my face so that peripheral drop off is really minimalised. (If you wear glasses you will know what I mean when I say drop off - if you're as blind as I am the world doesn't exist outside of your frame, walking up/down stairs can make you appear drunk if you don't get it right. The world literally drops off outside of the frame.) New frames - $300. (By far and away the cheapest of the suitable frames I tried, and price wasn't even a consideration). New contacts $150. General eye health check..... It's all adding up huh? Good thing I am the master budgeter and we had the money to pay for this.
New, modern, more stylish glasses = good mood. Total hit to the bank balance not unexpected = average mood. Home alone but both boys super co-operative (grateful for you tube kids videos today) = good mood. Resisted cakes = great mood.
